The Chilliwack Local Love Food Hub is seeking volunteers to sign up for fall shifts to help deliver food hampers.
Right now the strongest need is for volunteer drivers to help with hamper delivery every second Thursday morning.
“We welcome back anyone who has helped before, and invite new folks to come and help out,” Christopher Hunt, one of the local Extra FARE organizers with the Food Hub, said in a post.
There are several local hubs operating including the Local Love Food Hub brought together by Chilliwack Community Services and Salvation Army Food Bank with reps from Chilliwack Citizens for Change (Community Cares Initiative) to meet the food insecurity needs of residents.
“We often struggle with having enough delivery drivers to get the hampers to the clients,” Hunt explained.
They are using the online iVolunteer registry from the United Way to facilitate signups for volunteer shifts.
Each hamper delivery shift requires 15 drivers.
